    I'm sorry, I find it very difficult to believe organizations like NY Times, US News & World Report, and *ahem* Reuters are so gullible as to 'be taken in":

    I don't think you are a genius or anything, but I bet you could spot repeating photos of a guy, not too mention repeating missiles or smoke.

    I assume that those organizations can hire people at least as smart as you.

    I think you're a real Einstein:thup: That aside, according to your own link the pic was taken by the NY Times photographer and was corrected in the print edition before it went to print. It was only the online edition that was incorrect, which was fixed pretty quickly. We are talking about only one photo in your post, not a whole slew, which is a different story altogether. BTW, having a neocon shill as your source does little to add credibility to the link...

    Gee, I posted the first last night. That's not all that quick. But go ahead, make excuses. BTW, speaking of shilling. NY Times pays you? :laugh:

    Depends when they were made aware of it and by whom. Maybe the picture editor didn't caption it correctly. I would assume that in order for the NY Times photographer to take the pic he'd have to be in Lebanon. There is a lot of distance between NY and Lebanon. Things happen. I don't read the NY Times.

    As stated, there is a lot of distance between NY and Lebanon. Did the caption go out in the print edition? No. So looks like somebody was doing their job....

    and they are trying to make a fool of me as well. Americans want the truth, good, bad or indifferent. We live by and stand by the truth. When we cannot trust our media, who do we trust? This is Common Americanism 101. Or, didn't you know?
